The reverence of great trees – be they oaks, ash, or the witch-ridden elders – is universal and found in all cultures. Equally so in the British Isles. In all animistic traditions, trees are imbued with spirits of various forms and are the focus of rites and moots, as well as the source of a great many medicines.  Their reverence is as much an integral part of our natural cosmos as stones, wells, streams, mountains, etc.
